What's New in IBM Enterprise Records V5.2.1

IBM Enterprise Records V5.2.1 brings support to new releases of several data analysis and insight programs:

  • Support for Content Navigator V3.0: Content Navigator is the unified IBM Enterprise Content Management (ECM) experience platform that spans mobile, web, and desktop form factors. It includes features that make it easier to create, share, manage, and collaborate on content by using ECM products, key partner solutions, and even third-party content repositories. Content Navigator V3.0 enhances the integration with Box and Microsoft™ Office and provides new role-based redaction capabilities. Version 3.0 employs a new Continuous Delivery support policy.
  • Support for Cognos Analytics V11: Cognos Analytics V11 enhances the efficiency and capabilities of business users, report authors, and administrators through a simplification of the user experience. The solution offers more capabilities that reduce or eliminate IT intervention for many previous tasks. This gives users more self-service options and ultimately advances the analytic expertise of the enterprise. Cognos Analytics eliminates the need to utilize a range of different tools to accomplish similar goals. Insights can now be captured more efficiently through a guided experience that interprets user intent and supports users with a suggested path that is focused on and tailored to their needs.
  • Support for Crystal Reports 2016: Crystal Reports is a third-party reporting server and if you wish to use Crystal Reports, you need to license this product separately.
  • Support for WebLogic Server 12.2: WebLogic Server is a scalable, enterprise-ready Java™ Platform.

  • These enhancements also apply to the cloud version of Enterprise Records. You can read more details here.
